    I have a Bing “Auga” board, It is 5′ long 23″ wide and finless. It has a large concave on the bottom tail of the board. It was made in the late 60’s. Anyone have any history about “Auga” boards? Vince

    Has anyone ever seen this type of rare surfboard? Do you know anything about it or have any stories?! It is an “AUGA BOARD” made at Bing Surfboards in Hermosa Beach California USA during the late 60’s. Tom Warren and Steve Barger (The Auga Men) rode these boards in the South Bay (Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach) doing 360’s all over the waves. They then moved to Maui in the early 70’s and tore the place apart on the Auga Board. They were in a movie doing many, many 360’s at Lahaina Harbor by Steve Bingham?! Gerry Lopez was impressed with their Auga Board.The board is 4’10” long, 22″ wide, 18″ nose (12″ up), 21″ tail, 4″ maximum thickness, rocker- nose 3″, tail 1/2″, Concave tail 13″ long by 14″ width by 1 1/2″ depth, red- color in the resin, a black pin line on the entire bottom that says “Auga Board”, Bing Surfboards late 60’s logo on top. I showed the board to Bing Copland at his book signing and he did not think there were any Auga boards with Bing logos that survived! Please contact me with stories or other information, thanks.
